Graves, who has just been sentenced to 
eljrhteen months' imprisonment by tho 
Justices of the Scoltisli High Court 
Flttinitf at Kdinhurg^li. Graves laughed 
in the face of his judges and when 
sentenced, remarked: "Well, it 
been a fair trial," 

Setaotlvaa' Slaooverlea. 

Secret ciplier co<Jes, cryptogram ca- 
bles, and notebooks with pages gummed 
together to conceal records, made by 
Graves, were unearthed by the detec- 
tive's who trailed Graves. A few of 
the many notes deciphered after pa- 
tient work, were the following: "Cur- 
rent rumors; present. Incoming, out- 
going; clearing for action. Have low- 
<"red defending nets. Land fortifica- 
tions are ready for action. Protective 
manoeuvres arc being carried out at 
«ea. Coal being carried by rail. Coal 
steamer arrived at town. Prep- 
arations are being made. Remarkable 
lnfl\iK of reservists. Mine fields being 
laid. .Ml Is quiet. Importan' to re- 
port. iJners are appearing. 

There were also the names, with 
code equiptnents, of various classes of 
battleships, cruisers and destroyers, 
such a."* the Orion class, the Dread- 
nought cla.';s, the J..ord Nelson class, 
the I^ion class and the Invincible class. 

"It is an extensU-e code dealing with 
practically the Tv'hole of the British 
navy, including torpedo boats and de- 
stroyers and submarines, mine layers 
and mlne-searcher.s," declared the sol- 
icitor-general for Scotland. "There are 
also cod(> words for Scapaflosv, Moray 
rirth and Cromarty.' 

Torp'Ao Armament 

The torpedo armament of the new 
British warships Is to be increased. 
With the exception of the Dreadnotight 
and three of the invincibles. which have 
five tubes each, all the vessels of the 
Dreadnought class now hprre three 
and the battle cruisers two. It has 
been proposed to place five torpedo 
tubes In the ships of the 1911 pro- 
gramme, while the torpedo armament 
of the destroyers is being increased 
from two tubes to four. 

The reason for the increase is that 
torpedoe.B of the latest types have a 
range almost eritial to that of a gun, 
Trri thousand yards i.«! regarded as 
quite a practicable distance for th? 
Britisli Hardicaatle torpedo. As a 
torpedo carries a much more damaging 
charge than a shell, and strikes a ves- 
sel in its most vital part, great atten- 
tion has been paid to Its dpvlopment. 

German Preadnouerht battle-ships 
carry six tubes earh and battle cruis- 
ers four. The .Tananese battle cruiser 
Kongo, now building at Barrow, will 
have eight tubes.

In regard to the report tliat the Vlc- 
torial memorial museum recently 
completed, at a cost of a couple of 
million dollars Is in danger owing to 
a crack which has apeared in its walls, 
Mr. David Kw«rt, Chief Dominion 
Architect, said that the walls are in 
no,vyorse shape now than they were 
six months ago. He said tlie depart- 
ment of public works engineers ex- 
amined the foundation of the tower In 
which the crack has appeared and u re- 
port will be made shortly. Mr. Kwarl 
is inclined to think that the tower will 
settle no more and that the building 
is safe.

REGIXA, Aug. 19.— The following 
crop report has been issued by the 
department of agriculture for S^askatch- 
ewan. Harvesting has now commenced 
in Saskatchewan, and cutting will be 
general over the province early next" 

The question now .uppermost in the 
minds Is that of securing a supply of 
labor*, and binder twine. The -depart- 
ment of agriculture secured a thousand 
men from the first excursion train 
which arrived in Winnipeg on the 16th, 
In addition to 400 local laborer5i. Other 
excursions are due to arrive at Winni- 
pejr Aug. 19, 23, 26, 31 and Sept. 1. A 
good deal of barley and oats and of the 
earlier variety of wheat is already in 
the sheaf. Winter wheat in the Frince 
Albert section has been 6ut, and prom- 
ises a good yield. Seven per cent of 
the whole crop has been harvested at 
Maple Creek, and cutting is also under

alioW foreign nations -to test the legal- 
ity of this provision by suits In the 
United States suprome court 

The president aiscussed the message 
with members of the house and sen- 
ate ana Its workings were decided 
upon at a meeting of the cabinet which 
began at luncheon time and lasted un- 
til late in the. afternoon. The message 
was road in congress soon afterwards, 
and will be taken tomorrow by com- 
mittees of botii houses- 
It was the belief that a determined 
effort would be made to meet the pre- 
sident's wishes, although some leudera, 
particularly in the house, were in- 
clined ti> bell'='ve the message meant no i 
further action in regard to the canal 
at the present session. Mr. Taft ex- 
piulned that he was anxious to sign 
the present bill, but wlshes'To^ assure 
other governments of the spirit of fair- 
ness on the part of the United States. 
The president was told that an act 
of congress would have the effect of 
abrogating any treaty previously 
agreed to, and the decision of the 
supreme court oyer the Chinese ex- 
clusion act ■.•was glVeri as authority for 
ti)e statement. His suggestion to con- 
gress for additional legislation de- 
signed to prevent any -such construc- 
tion as that of the supreme court in 
the Chinese case would allow foreign- 
ers to try 'their case In the United 
States courts. 

The message is drafte.d In language 
thai negatives al;solut£!y any desire on 
the part of congress to repeal the Hay- 
Pauncefote treaty or to violate it.s pro- 
visions by thi.s legislation, and leaves 
open to any person who deems him- 
self aggrieved by the provisions of the 
act an opportunity to appeal to United 
States courts, and the president says: 
America's "Oood Taith" 

"I think the importance of our stand- 
ing before the world and our Hn.xicty 
to give to the world an opportunity to 
test this question in the courts is an 
earnest of our good faith in attempt- 
ing to keep within our treaty oi>liga-

Mr, R, B, Bennett Says British 
Taxpayer Cannot Stand the 
Burden He Is Carrying Much 

MONTRF,\L, Aug. 19— Whether or 
not R. B. Bennett. K. C. M. P., intends 
to contest a seat for the Britls>h House 
of Commons he would not say while 
he wa.s on his way home to Calgary 
from a visit to ICngland. He has been 
over to the old land three times this 
year and will go again shortly. Re- 
forring to the navy question in Great 
Britain, Mr. Bennett said: 

"The situation there is far more 
serious than wc- in Canada 'have Uny 
idea of. The Britis'h taxpayer cannot 
stand the burden he is carrying much 
loiiger. Just what iny observations 
are on the situation between England 
and Germany, I don't care to express 
off-hand. One should think before he 
speaks on such a subject and think" 

Mr. Bennett Inferreid rather frankly 
that he is not altogether in favor of 
the visit to Canada of AVinston 

"I am afraid that some religious and 
sectarian disputes would follow and 
We would have enough of such disputes 
in this country," he declared.

VANCOUVER. Aug. 19. — Mr. K. J. 
Chamberlin, president of the G, T. 
railway and the Grand Trunk Paclllc, 
1* still very much annoyed about the 
distortion of his now famous interview 
given nut In Montreal about a month 

When seen by a Coionist representa- 
tive at the Hotel Vancouver last even- 
ing, Mr. Chamberlin said that n"' only 
was he mlsreported on that occasion, 
but on o\ery occasion flnce he has been 
nucstioned about It. "Beyond a, formal 
slatoment which I have written, I have 
nothing to say on the subject." 

"There Is one point not touched on 
In your statement," stated the tnter- 
\lfwer. "nnd that Is In regard to the 
overheating of wheat when passing 
through the tropics. Were you quoted 
correctly In that regard?" 

"1 have nothing to say. I was mls- 
represenied as to that and to all -the 
rest of the article." 

"Well, what Is your real opinion on 
that matter?" 

"I hava nothing to say." 

The written rtatem<»nt follows: 

"My statement that I did not con- 
sider the Canadian rallr.'aya would be 
intarastad in boat lines via the Panama 
canal, is quUa correct, but I remarked 
to tha Montreal reporter that f«r traua-

"It is believed by observers of the 
Biruatlon that Yuan Shi Kai at last

Hung, the vice-president of the repub- 
lic, who was his one possible rival. 

PEKING, Atig. 19.— The Chinese Na- 
tional aa-sembly, after a stormy meeting 
resolved, by 50 votes against 11, , to 
pre-sent a petition to President Yuan 
Shai Kai for a further explanation of 
the evidence on which General Chang 
Chen Wu and General Feng Wei, who 
were members of Dr. Sun Yat Sen's 
party, were seized and summarily ex- 
ecuted. The petition .sets forth five of 
the charges which the government had 
stated in a manifesto had been proved, 
and then add.s rebutting comment. It 
requests President Yuan to resign 
within three days, and says if his re- 
ply is unsatisfactory the national as- 
sembly wilt summon him to explain in 
person^ If his personal explanation 
should prove unsati.sfactory, then the 
house will impeach Er,^flJidcnt Yuan or

his trip of 535 miles to the German 
capital from Issy, five miles southwest

Mr, Walter Long, Now Visiting 
Montreal, Speaks of British 
Politics and Troubles of the 
Asquith Government. 



MONTREAL. Aug. 19— "The suggest- 
ed arrest of Mt. Bonar Law is bom- 
bast and non-tense, and Mr. Churchill 
1« talking through his hat." said the 
Rt. Hon, Walter Hume Long, M. P 
for the Strand division of London and 
ex-chlef Secretary for Ireland, now on 
visit with his family to Canada, in 
the course of an Interview this morn- 

"Mr. Churobill," he ad.led. "Is merely 
advertising himself." 

Continuing Mr. Long said that tho 
TTnlonUts l»ad not Incited the Tllstorlt,-.-* 
to revolt. They had. as a matter. f.f 
fact, warned the government that trfiii- 
Ule would come if they attempted to

He de^-lared that It was doubtful If 
the house of commons would pass the 
bin, and If it did the measure would assuredly be thrown out by tho 
Iriuse of lordB. If In the end It was 
forced thrmigh, Ulster would take 
strong steps to make the working of 
the act IrepoBsible. 

The ex-ohlef secretary for Ireland 
pointed out that there waa an noute 
disunion between the various sections 
of the jovemment party, the differ-

Hon. Dr. Young Attended Uni- 
versity Congress and Visited 
British Colleges — Found the 
Province Popular. 

On the eve of the first formal cere- 
mony that will mark the beginning of 
the University ,of British Columbia, 
Hon. H. E. Young, niinister of educa- 
tion and provincial secretary, returned 
to the city Sunday evening from a 
visit to pome of the leading British 
universities and from meeting with 
those engaged in educational matters 
the Empire over. Dr. Young has been 
away for two months and for all the 
tirns has been traveling, attending meet- 
ing's or; visiting universities. Outside 
this the only visit he had time to make 
was to the medical school in ISdinUurgh, 
where there is a celebrated museum. 

The minister left here at the invita- 
tion of the British government to rep- 
•rcsiint the University of British Co- 
lumbia at the Imperal University con- 
gress. This gathering, held under the 
auspices of the government, had been 
in view for two years and the prepara- 
tions had 'been very carefully made. 
Representatives of flfty-three universi- 
ties in the Empire were present in the 
Imperial Institute, London, during the 
sessions of the congress, and a-niong 
these every Institutoln of higher learn- 
ing in Canada v.-as numbered. The plana 
for the congress -Included not only the 
holding of the meetings In London but, 
a tour of several of the chief colleges 
of the old land. 

Oongreas a Suooaas 

.Speaklnij <. ! the ccngres.s and of his 
visit generally to a representative of 
The Colonist yesterday, Dr. Young said: 

"The co.igress was a marked success 
in every way and I would not have 
missed It or the opportunity to meet 
so many of the Empire's leaders In 
university work ^or a great deal. Not 
only were the meetings, which were 
held, most enlightening and interesting, 
but the itinerary which had been ar- 
ranged for us afterwards enabled us to 
see at first hand what is being done 
In the colleges of the motherland and 
how they are doing It. There were two 
sessions each day during the six days 
the congress lasted In London, each 
under the guidance of some distinguish- 
ed man. The first was opened by Lord 
Kosebery, and other chairmen were 
Lord Curzon, Lord Rayletgh, Rt. Hon. 
Arthur Balfour, Lord Strathcona and

SMtlih soldiers in the depths of 
jtmfl^s of Central Africa, where 
many yenrs. In defiance of all author- 
ity, he had pursued the career of an 
Illicit Ivory trader, James Ward Rog- 
ers, an American, died on the eve of 
his capture. He was shot down, ac- 
cording to hi» own statement, by a lit- 
tle force of troops which had been sent 
into the wilderness in pursuit with 
orders not to return without the out- 
law, dead or alive- News of Rogers' 
death came formally today to the Bri- 
tish colonial office from Captain C. V. 
Fox, Inspector of Monalla province, 
who commanded the expedition. Al- 
though told in an official report, the 
story revealed is one of the most dra- 
matic in colonial annals. 

For years Rogers had carried on his 
lawless trade, which poiiular opinion 
credited with netting him a fortune. 
The remote regions along the Lado 
Enclave and Congo boundaries were- 
the scenes of his operations. Time 
after time brother officials of the 
Sultan had tried in vain to trap him. 
It was this defiance ot years which de- 
teriTiined -the government to crush the 

(."aptain Fox's reports show that in 
his long operations Rogers had dtne 
more than had been dreamed of by the 
ccionial office. He had established e.n 
organized administration over the 
wild, trackless country, and among the 
natl\-es was a virtual. If uncrowned, 
king. The success of the outlaw in 
handling his "subjects" and In the pur- 
suit of his trade drew from Captain 
Fox. in his report, the tribute that 
Rogers' work was worthy of a better 
Dramatic Pursuit. 

Not since the explorer. Henry M. 
Stanle.v. pierced the jungles in 1S71 
and found Dr- Livingstone has such a 
tale of hardships, ■trials and dangers 
come out of Africa. For the I'Urpose 
of tracking the outlaw the English 
commander was given a non-com- 
missioned subordinate, and six So\i- 
danese carriers and mules for the 
transportation of supplies were part of 
his equipment. His instructions were 
plain — not to return until the outlaw 
was cap'tured, 

With a soldier's disregard for red 
tape. Captain Fox, in his report, falls 
to mention dates In describing the 
man hunt. Ajiparently the denouement 
of the jungle dr.ania came three months 
ago. The •.lursuers then had spent< 
weeks ])liinglng through the jungle that 
almost defied passage, Roger.s cunning- 
ly leading them through the densest 
of swamps, forests and across deep 
streams. Before the outlaw was over- 
taken he had crossed the Nile into the 
Belgian Congo. 

Creeping up the Uganda bank of the 
Nile, the expedition pushed forward 
for six weeks before the quarry was 
located. Fox and his men- had worn 
their clothes to tattern. and their sup- 
plies were exhausted, leaving them 
I facing starvation in the wilderness. 

The Death of Sogara 

The last 12 hours of the pursuit was 
particularly trying. The chase led 
over a mountain, with Rogers' men a 
short distance in advance. As they 
fled, the ape-like native companions of 
the outlaw sent back taunts and jeers 
at their piirsuers. Dramatic in the ex- 
treme is Captain Fox's explanation of 
the death of Rogers- In the jungle 
into which they had descended from 
the .mountain his party came sudden- 
ly upon a camjl. A native approached 
the English officer and said: 

"The commander wants you to come 
In. He is sick and cannot come out."

"Which I? Mr. Rogers "■' 
Mr. Rogers has been shot," replied 
the outlaw's companion. 

"Yes," Interrupted Rogers, "and by 
your men. 

•'Come, stand right here, ao I can 
look at you," Rogers continued. His 
eyes w«^re- blazing, and from beneath a 
blanket he drew a revolveir and pointed 
it at the officer. 

'1 am a d.vlng man. I guess-." he said- 
"I did rtot think they o^uld kill old

"T am sure that it Is not the Inten-

•'Returning to London I attended the 
second congi'ess, thij Imperial' Congress 
of Teachers, iiekl undtr the auspices of 
the Empire League, at which there were 
teachers present from ■every part of the 
Empire. I had an opportunity of ad- 
dressing the congress twicb and had 
tne honor of responding to the 
to Canada at the bamjuet wliich was 
hold. 1 found that the same problems 
existed in the older-eslabllahed schools 
as In tliose in the newer parts of the 
Kmplre, but In a different way, as 
would be expected from the varying en- 
vironments. The government expends an 
'enormous amount on educational mat- 
ters, but the universities receive very 
little state aid. Tliey arn dependent on 
their investments and on benuests. 
There Is much that we can learn from 
thnlr loiu experience, but tiiere Is much 
also that It would not be, wise for us 
to adopt In a new country."

RtMf always been experienced 
In the obtaining of inforinatloEu aa It 
meant that Individual institutions liave 
to be written to and much time is con- 
sumed before the Information desired 
can be secured. The bureau will be a 
sort of clearing house on university 
matters,, and will be In charge of a 
permanent secretary. It will be man- 
aged by a board consisting of seven 
men , from the home universities and 
seven from those of the over-seas uni- 
versities. A provisional committee ha.s 
been appointed and a start will be made 
Immediately. To us here In -British Co- 
lumbia this bureau will be very valu- 
able. If iVe want to find out Jiow some 
faculty is being conducted elsewhere, 
what the record of some teacher Is, 
or how certain plans of one kind or 
another arc progressing we can obtain 
the Information by writing to the sec- 
retary of the bureau Instead of having 
to correspond with several college au- 
thorities at distaat point.^. The. expenses 
will be met by a small contribution 
from each university. , ■- 

Problems Are the Same 
"I had the pleasure of vlslling. with 
the delegates, the univorsllies at Lon- 
don, O-xford, Cambridge, Birmingham. 
Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Wo were 
greatly interested by all we saw. We 
found that the universities over there 
have the same problems that we have 
to meet in the newer countries, even 
though their environment is different. 
The dominant note in all the colleges 
there. In the oldest as in the newest, 
Is that they need greater pliability, that 
they are not meeting the new condi- 
tions of the changing years as they 
should '10. While that is so all desire 
the "preservation ot the classics and 
the hLmnhitles, for the teaching of 
which tl-.e older universities have been 
noted. Ox ior.l and Cambridge are reach- 
ing, ou- along the lines of university 
extension work, taking education to the 
Pfcopie, £.nd the buildings and staff are 
being utilized in summer, while the reg- 
ular c!«Kse« are off, for summer classes 
for those who cannot afford to take a 
university course but at the same time 
desire to follow some particular line 
of university study. Leading special- 
ists are invited to lecture during these 

"Newer universities have grown up of 
later years, like Birmingham, Leeds, 
Liverpool and Manchester, and these have 
probably developed more along practi- 
cal lines. In Birmingham I had a v*ry 
good opportunity of learning this. Sir 
Oliver Lodge gave me every chance to 
become actjualnted with their system, 
was kindness itself and devoted a whole 
day to me. I alsp had the opportunity 
of visiting several of their board 
schools, ft school for the feeblc-mlndBd, 
and what they call their ragged 

, ... .^ V <,, ,^wi, xi-v, iveraity Alone. The 
jHSMlttlttnt* 1b -swtnj^t:^ more and more 
now to the idea of efCectlveness of the 
teaching staff and a recognlton of the 
.qrbwlng demand a<^iongst the people for 
a greater dli^j^firtiinatlon of knowledge 
and greater facilities for the acquisi- 
tlon of this knowledge. 

"Thi.,* Is showi. more particularly in 
the poIytechnlPi and trade schools in 
the ol. country. I had the good fortune 
to be able to visit one or two In Lon- 
don and, they certainly seem to be the 
last word along the lines of technical 
education^ They work In conjunction 
with the people, they are visited by 
committees from different unions and 
are working in groat harmony. From 
what I could find out the results they 
are obtaining from those who have 
taken the course has been surprising.'' 
Zntorsst In British Columbia 
The Interest taken in the Dominion 
as a whole and in this province waa 
very pleasing to he minister, who 
found that Canadians were everywhere

Alderman Cuthbert's Resolution 
to Appoint Engineer Water

PRINCE RUPERT, Aug. 19— .T. Johii-

With a companion they were going up

That the exigencies of the local water 
situation and the growing importance 
of the financial department of the 
city require that each department be 
placed under a separate head, was urg- 
ed upon the city council last evening 
by Alderman Cuthbert. He submitted 
a resolution to the effect that City 
Engineer Rust be appointed water com- 
missioner, but on the suggestion of 
.Mderman Beard the matter waa tabled 
for two weeks in order to give full op- 
portunity to the council to consider the 

In urging his resolution, Alderman 
Cuthbert declared he iiid so with re-' 
liictaiice, as Mr. Raymur has been head 
of that department for twenty-five 
years. But it should not be 
forgotten that the growth of the 
city has been such that today one of- 
ficial should not be expected to hold 
both offices of water commissioner and 
city comptroller. Today there are 8000 
water services outside those In Oak 
Buy and Victoria West, and the prob- 
Um of an adequate water supply for 
the city has become acute. Early In 
the year the council committee which 
investigated the working of the various 
city departments had recommended 
that Mr. Raymur be placed in charge 
of the financial operations of the city 
while a competent waterworks engineer 
be appointed water commissioner. 

Alderman Cuthbert declared that he 
had always favored securing an expert 
engineer from outside to superintend 
the waterworks deptirtment, though 
the council early In the year had de- 
cided to wait until the arrival of Mr. 
Rust before the recommendation bf the 
Invcstl'Ratlng committee should be 
adopted. Mr. Rust waa now hero, and 
the time had arrived for a complete re- 

organization of the department. There 
was no doubt that if Mr. Rust were ap- 
pointed he would make some drastic 
but very necessary changes. The people 
arc demanding that the work be taken 
over by an experienced engineer. 

Alderman Cuthbert declared that his 
only object was to secure the best re- 
sults for the city. The necessity of 
closer supervision of the city's fin- 
ances waa indicated by the fact that 
tho sewer fund of $450,000 has been 
spent before it was known the limit 
had been reached. 

Alderman Stewart asserted that the 
council could make no mistake in .ap- 
pointing Mr. Rust, and thus following 
out the recommendation of the Invest- 
igating committee. Mr. Rust has had 
wide experience in waterworks matters 
in Toronto and his experience would, 
prove most valuable here. 

Mayor Beckwith pointed out that 
under the bylaw fixing the duties of 
officers Mr. Rust Is already water 
works engineer, having been given the 
necessary powers more than a year 
ago. Cuthbert admitted that 
such might be the case so far as con- 
struction work is concerned, but Mr. 
Rust has no voice in formulating a 
pcllcy for the Improvement of tho 

Alderman Okell agreed with Alder- 
mnn Cuthbert's resolution, but he 
doubted If the time were opportune to 
put Mr. Raymur out of the position 
just when the arbitration proceedings 
In regard to the Sooke lake scheme are 
underway, proceedings which have been 
conducted from the start by Mr. Hay- 

"If you wait until the Sooke lake 
nork l.s finished, you will wait a long 
time," declared Alderman Cuthbert, 
who, however, was not averse to the 
two weeks' hoist proposed for his mo- 
tion, and this step was decided upon.

There is nothing at all aurprising in 
tlie news of the discovery' of gold near 
Xltlnat Lake, nor stiall we be at all 
.•- irprlsed to hear of further discover- 
ies. At the same time we think it well 
to caution people agaiinst being in 
tco great a hurry to conclude thai wo 
are about to witness the opening up of 
an Island Eldorado. There are yet 
many persons In the city who recall 
the Leach River gold excitement, which 
had a fairly substantial basis, and the 
. xistence of gold-bearing gravels along 
the shore of the Strait of Juan de Fuoa 
Is very well known. A hydraulic plant 
has been Installed in the neighborhood 
of the Sombrio river, but with what 
Miccess wo ure not in a position Just 
now lo say. One of. t*ie oldest resl- 
.; ru.'; of that part of the Island said 
recently to the Colonist that in every 
jan of gravel from the beach you 
'■could find a color of gold, u tnie 
: precious metal comes from has long 
been a matter of surmise. Some per- 
.soas have suggested that it was wash- 
ed up from the sea, the idea being that 
pold-bearing sands from the Fraaer 
Imd in years gone by been deposited 
mere. The elevation of the . aurlfirous 
pravels above the sea and- their pres- 
ence far Inland seem to dispose of that 
suggestion. Another eolutlpn auggc*t- 
ed. has been that somewhere south of 
Cowlchan Lake there are gold-bearing 
rocks In place. The reported discovery 
from .Nltlnat tendis to confirm this sug- 
gesllon. The country Is an exceeding- 
ly difncult ori6 to" prospect. " So den«c

Green, in his Hl8tor> of the English 
People, says: "The rectors and 'vicars 
nho were driven out were the most 
learned and the most active of thfir 
order. The bulk of the great livings 
throughout the country were in their 
hands. They stood at the head of the 
London clergy, as the l^ondon clergy 
stood In general repute at the head of 
their class throughout England. They 
occupied the higher pOsts at the two 
universities." Hte elsewhere say." of 
them that they were "men whose zeal 
and labor bad diffused throughout the

The new law was enforced with 
great vigor. BiUKtrsss eredtcd for

quently impri8one<l. Many qf the per- 
secuted people fled to Holland; others 
sought refuge In Ameriga. Indeed It 
seemed at one time that civil war was 
lmminent.v and Charles 11. even went 
so far as to invite the assistance of 
France if he found it neceasary to com" 
pel the Nonconformists by force to 
submit. To secure this aid Dunkirk 
was given up to P'rance. The suf-

ingness of the. civic authorities to sell 
tlie municipal bonds at too low a fig-

We are favored with a letter from a 
correspondent who Is too modest to 
take the credit for the following mem- 

1. When a pleasure boat capsizes, 
the occupants have a fair chance of 
escape, as the boat floats so steadily 
and it does not drift very quickly. 

2. When a oanoe turns turtle it Is 
different; it supports very little, and 
drifts away at a great rate. 

3. Therefore, nil canoes for hire (at 
least) should be provided with cush- 
ions stuffed with reeds, cork or rein- 
deer hair. A regular life belt could be 
folded under an ordinary cushion. 
There are not many accidents here 
when all is considered, but I am sure 
you must remember that In the old 
days they were almost unknown. Why

statement than that they adhere to 
their own programme for the present.

any discrimination In favor of Ameri- 
can shipping would be a distinct viola- 
tion of the Hay-I'auncefote treaty." The

tion of British Columbia to borcott the 
Panama exhibition has aroused great in- 
terest at the Domlnicn capital. We are 
not aware that British Columbia had so 
determined. ■*'

The proposal, that soldiers of the 
British Army, whose time has expired, 
should be provided with homes in the 
over-sea* Dominions, Is one that com- 
mends itself to us. with what seems 
to be a necessary qualification, namely 
that they should receive previous in- 
iiipuctlon, so that they .wlU understand 
at lesst the rudiments of practical ag- 
riculture before they are placed upon 
the land. We think we see In this a

Situated, a.s it Is, under the frown- 
ing shadow of Arthur's Seat, with the 
Castle Hill at one end ahd the Calton 
Hill at the other, built over a series 
of ridges and valleys, it would be im- 
possible to Imagine anything more 
grandly arrogant than Edinburgh. 
Originally, the place consisted only 
of the huge fortr^.<<s on the castle 
rock, buUt there by Edwin of North- 
umbrle, and hence known as Edwin's 
Burgh. But gradually there grew up 
a long stragg'lng town, a mile or so 
In length, that wended along the rocky 
.^addle-backed ridge which was the only 
approach to the castlo entrance. In 
the twelfth century, Holyrood Palace 
was built at the foot of this long 
street, which has been variously 
known in history as "The Royal Mile" 
or "The Cockpit of Scotland." In, the 
vernacular of the town during the 
middle ages, though. It was alwayi re- 
ferred to as "The Causeway." 

Traditions of Mary, the Ul-fAted 
queen; of Rlzzlo, whose blood, legend 
says, still stains the wooden flodr of 
the tiny chamber 'n Holyrood whero 
lie sank beneath the daggers of his 
assassins; of the .xtern, proud Dou- 
glas, whose ambition led them to 
hope to us-irn the Scottish; or 
iron John Knox and Jenny Qeddes, who 
threw her stool at Dean Hanna — one 
Is sure Jenny would be a suffragette 
today, and a militant, at that; of th«. 
great Montrose, of Bonnie Prince

figures In Scotih history, rise up be- 
fore one. A t( wn more than ordin-

Carcassonne, the incroyablr. th s

It would seem, is very different frotn 
Edinburgh. Superfli lally, one mU'lit 
say there '•^ not' ng between the two. 
Yet. stay a mon fnt. A litle Ht.Mi', a 
little reflection and examination of the 
t'vn will .serve, to convince that, not- 
withstflndlng the long leagues between 
them, the difference in rlime and tem- 
perament and race, and even In out- 
ward architecture, Edlnhurgb and Car- 
cassonne are somewhat akin. I'nder 
the .shadoV of the i'ar-flung Pyrenees, 
the towers and battlements of Carcas- 
sonne loom across the sky like nn 
echo of the past. When you stand at 
a distance and look at the city before 
you. it seems as if cavalcades of 
knlghtK must Is.sue from its Kates, as 
If the people met must wear the cos-

1 1MI|il|pli a Clncinnatti colored 

man, wbo"liaving found an old 20 
pound shell of the kind used In the 
war which liberated his southern 
bretlhern from slavery placed It in the 
fire to find out if It was loaded. It 
was loaded. When the hollow sphere 
of iron burst into pieces, the colored 
man, who had sat down before the fire 
to await the remilt, went across the 
room and through the wall, fortunately 
head first, and the noise of his experi- 
ment aroused the , neighborhood and 
compelled the fire deiiartment to turn 

out. [ 

"The Clncinnatti colored man, like 
the English and Canadian bankers, was 
not killed. After the explosion he 
claimed to know where there wa.s 
another shell, but he seems to Tiave 
betrayed a sad lack of interest in 
finding out whether it was loaded. 
Perhaps the bank officials referred to 
know where there is another eacape of 
gajs, but We are not told that tlipy 
have gone In quest thereof with 
another naked light. 

"Both the white and ci},lored race 
can be relied upon for occasional con- 
tributions to the crop that never fails 
— children and fools." 

We have been told in the cables that 
Australia Is a little Jealous of the 'suc- 
c-ess which Canada is obtalnln;;; in se- 
curing the t>eRi class of Immlgrani.s 
and that It Is doing its utmost to 
secure population by any and every 
possible means; but It comes as a sur- 
prise to be told, as we are In a letter 
from Sydney, that the Commonw<;«llh 
guvernment la going further In U»e di- 
rection of the encouragement of popu- 
latlon-getllns than any other country 
In the world. It le not only seriously 
considering the giving of a bonus of 
'flv€ pounds for every child born In the 
Commonwealth, but It Is proposed to re- 
verse tne hitherto considered programme 
and, instead of giving pensions for old 
age, to grant pensions for youth — at the 
rate of five shillings per week up to 
15 years — in other words that the en- 
couragement of youth shall be cultivat- 
ed even If It takes millions of pounds 
to do it. 

One peculiarity of the programme is 
that no stipulation is made that the 
children to be bonused must be legiti- 
mate", and it is already reported that 
the orphans' homes and other charitable 
''ttiBtitutlons are contemplating a general 
raijd upon the govern<ment to secure the 
bonus of children born hitherto, regard-

It is estimated that, wil^.:lfH'the pen-

under contemplation by the Common-

eight pounds per capita of the popula- 
tion; but this Is probably an exagg«j'a-

Sir George Reid, the high com-

Australia, who Is now In Ottawa con-

minister of trad^ and commerce, is 
one of the most o.istlnguished .'Jtates-

he went to Australia in 1852 and eoon 
becamt: interested In politics and was 
elected to the legislative assembly of 
New .South Wales as a free tradT in 
1880. He at onco won a high repu-

Honry Parkes as one of his colleague.", 
being asalgued the jiortfollo it pobli"; 
i.i.-*f.li4 t.'on. which he held u'llll Sir 
Henry retired from office after his de- 
feat by Sir George Dlbbs. Later, when 
Sir George fell from power, Mr. Reid 
was cail^d as premier, and, with the 
chlnf oVfice associated that of treas- 
urer, in which office ho was a great 
succee."', despite Ms free trade princi- 
ples, res"torlng the finances to a 
healthy condition. At one time he was 
a strong opponent of federation, u<pon 
the ground that the proposals did not 
sufficiently sffcyuard the Interests of 
New Soath W&les. Finally, however, 
he accepf^d the amended terms of 
urion and was one of the mem- 
bers elected to the commonwealth par- 
liament from Now South Wales. Ho 
wa."! at once elected leader of the op-

Is there any possibility that the 
colonial secretary will disallow the 
trade agreement T\'.hlch Hon. G. E. 
Foster has registered between Canada 
and Bpvpti nf the West Tndlps colonies? ' 
This seoms a startling question, but It 
Is put quite seriously by the London 
orrespondent of The Montreal Star, 
who is well posted on political matters 
In Enjrland. He says that the Llberal.s 
ar'p as.-sertlng that the agreement, if 
ratified, will make the West Indian 
negro pay more for the npcessarics of 
hl.i life In order that the sugar planter 
may not lose his preference in the 
Canadian market, and they add; "Tt

divide the West Indies Into two camps 
and HO obstruct the prospect of a West

of the fact that Mr. Foster was care-

the five non-assenting colonics for a 
period of three years, so as to give 
them time for consideration and par-

Matter for Police— The complaint of 
owner.s on the upper part of Flaguard 
street, who appealed to the city coun- 
cil for protection against the nuisance 
occasioned by the nightly howling of 
dogs ownuil by a resident of that neigh- 
borhood, will be r<'ferred to the police. 
The council first referred the matter 
to the sanitary inspector who reported 
that he had inyeBilgated the sanitary 
condition of the dog kennel and found 
it good, but he was at a loss to know 
why he had been asked to report upon 
the matter of the disturbance of the 
slumbers of residents in that section. 
That did not come within his Jurisdic- 
tion, but was a matter for the police. 

A Motor Mishap— Shortly before two 
o'clock yesterday afternoon, two motor 
cArs ciime Into serious collisfor. at tUo 
corner of J-.lnden and Rockland avenues. 
One car, in which were Mr. Garret B. 
Hughes, whp was driving, andMr. Des- 
pard Twigg. wa.<! proceeding down 
Rockland, when the other, driven by 
Mr. J, Untermeyer. who was accom- 
panied by three '.vomen, put In such 
sudden and unjieralded appearance that 
a collision was unavoidable. The oc- 
cupants Of the latter car were hurled 
out with considerable force, and one of 
tlid women rendered unconscious, i ho 
car was wrecked. but Mr. Hughes- 
motor did not suffer such serloua in- 

Ooa. To Solicitor— The claim of 
Mes.srs. Nagano and company. Japanps*-- 
merchijnta at thu corner of Cormorant 
and Government streets, for damagps 
to the amount of »218 for goods al- 
leged to h., ,1 ruined by reason of 
defective woik i^y city workmen in In- 
stalling cluster lights in the sidewalk 
at that point will he referred to the 
city solicitor. The city contends that 
dr-fpntR In the foundation of the build- 
ing permitted water standing In the ex- 
cavation in the walk to drain Into the 
basement. The goods alleged to have 
been destroyed were disposed of by the 
owners before belns: seen by the city, 
some of the articles for which a claim 
is put In being: .seaweed which, Aider- 
man Dllworth declares, can he secured 
by the pailful on the beach. 

City Wot Liable- The city will admit 
no llablltiy for any damage or incon- 
venience which may liave been occa- 
sioned liy reason of the shortage of 
water during the prPHont summer. 
Some time ago Messrs. Crease & 
Crease wrote the city complaining of 
the low pressure of the wnter supply 
In the Pemberton iilock and urging upon 
the city the hecesHlty of a letter hup- 
ply, at the same time pointing out that 
should any 111 results follow the scar- 
city the city would be held liable. At 
last night's meeting of the council the 
firm wrote again, complaining that no 
answer had been vouch.-jnfed to Its first 
communication. Messrs. Crease & 
Crease will be informed that the city 
ailmltR no llflbliltv.

How Can We See 

Is naturally the first question that will cnrne to the minds of 
tourists visiting this city. Of course, when they ask them- 
•^clves this question, they mean "How can we see Victoria as 
r Mivcniently and comfortably as possible and at the same time 
M^e everything that is worth seeing?" 'Che answer is: 


To tourists not having to catch an afternoon boat this trip 
i^ of especial benefit, as it occupies the time that most tourists 
will have the most leisure. The Auto Tally- Ho has seats in- 
clined 'Similar to the seats of a theatre, thus everybody can see, 
no matter where they sit. A competent annoujicer accom- 
panies each trip. , r> 1 c. 

This drive starts .from the corner of \ ates and Broad btreets 
every afternoon. Tickets $1 at all leading stores. 

You will miss one bf Victoria's big features if you don't take 
in the 4.30 Auto Tally-Ho Drive.

Thousands of people chew Chiclets who would not use 
any other chewing gum. Dainty morsels of the finest chew- 
ing gum, crisply coated with the pearly peppermint. Not 
the horse-mint or the swamp-mint— but Mentha piperita— 
the peppermint— the true mint— delicately fragrant, cool- 
ing and salutary.

Chiclets for Smokers.— A man finds that he en- 
joys his cigar, cigarette or pipe more keenly after 
chewing Chiclets. They refresh the mouth and 
throat, give a new relish to the flavor of fine to- 
bacco, keep the teeth white and the breath pure— 
relieve huskiness — prevent excessive smoking. The 
refinement of chewing gum for people of refinement. 

Look for the Bird Cards in the packets. You will find on« beautiful 
bird picture in each packet of Chiclets. Send us any fifty of these pic- 
tures with ten cents in stamps and we will send you— fr«c— our splendid 
Bird Album.

of self-sacrlflCB for the common good, 
but I do not Tjelleve we have yet 
reached the heights we are capable of 
attaining, there are many peaks still 
to rllmb, and^wc are as yet only on the 
foothills. • 

"In Canada, especially, our thoughts 
turn naturally, to the UuJted Empire 
Loyalists;- those women were ready, to 
face every danger and privation for 
the sake of an Ideal. If I could have 
cho.sen my ancestry T would like to 
have been a descendant of one of that 
splendid band. 

"It lies with us, what Ideals we sur- 
round our children with, It rests en- 
tirely In our hand.i. whether we up- 
hold honor, and self-le.ssness In public 
and In pTivnte. In our homes, as well 
as in our dealings with our fellows. 
After all, we women, as mothers, wives, 
as sisters, as friends, can Imprea n 
our men and on our children whaltever 
we choose. The responsibility Is al- 
mo.'it overwhelming. 

"A great Frenchman, Rousseau, once 
wrote: "Men will alwaj's be what wo- 
men make them; If therefore you 
would have men great and virtuous. 
Impress' upon the mlndw of women 
what greatness and virtue are." 

"Kupeclally is this true In connection 
with the rising generation. 

"YouAall know what the .Tesults, the 
great educationalists of tho middle 
ages, fcald: "If we have a child, till 
he Is 7, we do not care what becomes 
of him afterwards.' 

"I am a trained kindergarten teacher 
and have, therefore, had aomo experi- 
ence in training and educating children. 
One of the' things I was taught was 
the physiological fact that mental im- 
pressions actually make deflnate 
grooves on the brain of a child. 
Reptltlon deepens the groove until the 
child literally has trails all over his 
brain. It in extremely difficult to 
substitute other Impressionfl for the 
first ones In after years." So you see 
the paramount Importance that the trails across the marvellous un- 
explo?l^rl country, a child's mind, 
shouM be the right ones. 

"It lies entirely wtih us women what 
sort of trails those arp going to be. 

"Believing as we do that British 
Ideals of citizenship and freedom ero 
the highest yet conceived, wc desire 
to see those Ideals pr*?domlnati1ng 
wherever... the union js/Ck files, hut they 
need to be flung still higher and to ho 
strenglhenfrt by tho. absolutely self- 
less devotion of every Individual. Our 
public- lifeiought to be cleaner and 
purer than It is. tjiere is room for Im- 
provement everywhere. I We women of 
the Ovor»ra.s Club (ill over the world 
might do a great deal to keep the pub- 
lic life on a high and disinterested 

"Again I say we can do so. but there 
Is an 'if;' If we choose and If we are 
sufficiently , in earnest. 

"You know even better than T do 
the need there Is in this direction, I 
am sure. I will give you one Instance: 
"The other day, I was talking to a 
girl in a town In one of the prslrle 
provinces.' We were talking about 
politics and she said: 'My brother is 
not at all Interested In politics, he 
says there Is no money In them." 

"Now such a remark should not b« 
possible. It reveals a deplorable and 
degrading point of view and If such 
Ideals — If one cafi call them such — 
prevail, if money-making Is to be the 
sole aim of existence, Canada will 
never bo a truly great country. 

"Nature has surely done her share 
for this wonderful Dominion. Man has 
got to do his shfcre too. and be worthy 
of his great heritage and glorious op- 

Stichj- teaching as this Is needed In 
these days when we are In danger of 
worshipping prosperity. In Canada 
today we are suferlng from the false 
tea^hlnit thit public men act from

families are TtMtlmft> ' ^e" have to be 
sent away when they show that, 
humanly speaking, they are Incapable 
of reform. But for one such there are 
hundreds who are helped on the road 
to a better life. Miss Dorman, who 
has spent many years of her life In 
settlement and mission work in Eng- 
land, Is a believer in human nature. 
She says that It Is not often any man 
falls to respond to kind treatment. 
Those who receive temporary help, In 
the great majority of cases, repay 
their indebtedness, and letters from 
grsteful men In distant parts of the 
province who have prospered. We 
have. In Victoria, no other Institution 
where men discharged from the hospi- 
tals can be cared for till they tire 
strong enough to go to work. The 
matron . of the mission Is a trained 
ntirse and knows when good food and 
rest and such attendance as a nurse 
understand* how to give are necessary- 
No doubt there are hundreds of kind 
women who care for their boarders or 
roomers vin this way. But there ere 
many others who have neither the time 
nor the inclination to give services 
which arfe not paid for. 

It must not he thought that re- 
ligious, social and educational work Is 
neglected. Meetings are held regu- 
larly at which all are welcome. But 
It Is the Individual work, the m.nking of 
a home where sympathy and kindness 
can be shown in many ways and at nil 
times, that Is of the greatest Im- 
portance. For this the present build- 
ing Is not wen adapted. It Is not 
larffe enough and there are few con- 
veniences. It Is not a small thing that 
men, who will In all probability spend 
the rest of their lives in this province, 
shall receive aid In time of need and be 
surrounded by good InfUiencss. The 
work done hy Miss Dorman and ths 
men and women associated with her. 
commends itself to all good citizens 
and is worthy of their support. While 
the great need is for a new huildlng. 
the matron would establish n library 
If she had the books and would llko 
flowers to brighten the rooms. These 
wants could he easily s\ipplled without 
muoh self-denial by thoughtful house- 
holders. Ti.a Men's mission Is worthy 
of the support of benevolent people of 
ell creeds.

of the blngles. There woa ft «u: 

of work with the -willow to satisfy any- 
one, but the enemy did tho most and 
won by a score nt twelve to nine — en- 
ough scoring- to wear a furrow around 
the diamond. 

McDowell be«:an the ill treatment of 
the Bees. After Kaufmann had set 
Hausman on tho inltlr.l" bag by the 
process of connecting the ball and hl.s 
oplne. McDowell lifted the pill over the 
palings for a home run, and this meant 
two runs. With this lead In the open- 
ing stanza the foemcn were never 
headed. The Bees tried hard in their 
half of the open-lng stanza, but this 
ramo McDowell person added to the 
fliscomfort of tho electorate by making 
a star one-hand catch of Weed's drive 
-ivlth both Rawllngs and Meek on the 

Until the fourth frame the fielding 
wa.s fast and the asBembled mul^tt^^c 
hoped. Then the foemcn tallied two 
more. Speas beat a b-unt, and McDowell 
hit into what seemed like an easy dou- 
huo, but the pellet bounced, bad over 
Fvawllng.s. Williams hit to Weed, and 
Spcas scored when he hesitated about 
picking, up the pill. Then Mahoney 
drove a linet to Keller, and McDowell, 
scored when the second baseman fail- 
ed to hold the ball. 

Some fancy pegging finished this 

Crulckshank hit to BawlSngs, -who 
hurlPd to the plate to stop Williams, 
who hurried back to third when he 
found he couldn't beat the peg. Meek 
nailed him at third, however, and as 
tho other runners had advanced, Tohe 
pegged to Brooks, who returned the 
ball quick, and caught Birch sliding 
The third was the Interesting part 
of the Bees' performance. With Meek 
gone, he lost a wheel and couldn't roll 
into in time to beat his hit. Wood 
hit to the fence. Clemontson d'ld like- 
wise, and when Keller hit to Hausman 
and Wood beat him to third, the sacks 
were all populated. Kennedy hit to 
McDowell and Keller was tagged at 
second. Wood scoring meanwhile. Ken- 
nedy stode, and, when Birch pegged, lie 
collided with the second baseman and 
rolled in safe, while Clementson reachrd 
home. Then Kennedy added a third 
run by scoring from ."iecond on Kauff- 
man's hit to left. 

Hits by Haqsman and Fries, and 
fumbles by Keller and Meek gave the 
•.Isltors another In the fifth, and a 
two-bagger by Meol; after liawllngs got 
a walk, scored one for the Beos In their 
half. A few hits and some errors gave 
the foemen three more In the sixth. 
The seore was four to tlic bad when 
the seventh opened. Tlin fifies gathered 
a couple then. Clementson hit the ball 
over the fence for a home run wltlt 
Brooks on. This made the score eight 
to six. with the long end held by th'S 
fof>. They added 6ne, however. In their 
pnrt of the frame when Speas hit and 
drove In Fries, and In the eighth they 
made it twelve. Mahoney made a hom<» 
run and scored Birch In front, and 
Fries hit, following Crulkshonk's slngl<i 
and scored him. 

Brooks went In to pitch In the eighth. 
One run was scored from hl« twlrlintr. 
With the score twclvB to six, tite 
Bees started what might have been a 
garrlj^on finish, had the handicap b.<.en 
smaller. , Brook* scratched safe. Week 
hit for two baga. and Weed hit the pill 
to the pallftgs and scored Brooks. Then 
Meek scored on a passed ball and Weed 
scored on Kennedy's long fly out to 
left — but that -was all.

Is one of the most beautiful spots on Vancouver

that Sooke Harbor and Sooke River combined will be 
instrumental in making Sooke the most popular Sum-

The Climate of Sooke is magnificent, the summers 

being especially delightful, while the winters are very 

mild. Anything and everything will grow in Sooke.

Big' Outward Cargo 

The steamer Teucer, of the Blue 
Funnel line, is expected to begin load- 
ing a large amount of w-hale oil, lum- 
Iier and canned salmon at the outer 
wharf today, and tomorrow the steam- 
er Tacoma Maru, of the Osaka Shosen 
Itaisha, is to sail for the Orient with a 
big cargo of general merchandise. The 
steamer, like ail other transpacific 
steamers, will have Mg shipments of 
^\■heat and flour for Japan and China. 
Bemand for O-rala 

There is a good demand for wheat 
and flour from Japan. and Hongkong 
for nearby shipment, but millers are 
experiencing some difficulty in secur- 
ing .space in the regular line steaniers, 
while outside tramp tonnage Is scarce 
and held at high rates. ^Vhile the tar- 
iff rale on flour Is $3.50 Japan, $4.30 
Jlongkong and J5.00 Manila, the line 
managers are asking and being paid 
$1.00 per ton premium for space. These 
are- the minimum rates. The individ- 
ual lines may. If they elect, charge 
higher rates, and in all probability 
some of the lines will take such action 
on accoun't of the extreme scarcity <jf 
steam tonnage and the heavy offer- 
ings for the fall and winter months. 
This increase in the flour rate Is indi- 
cative of the general world improve- 
ment in shipping condiMons. 
Oues to Portl»na 

Tile steamer Hercules, under charter 
to the Waterhouse line, passed out on 
Sunday en route to Portland to begin 
loading outward. The Hercules will 
be the last steamer to load in the 
regular service of this line out of Port- 
land. The Waterhouse company have 
notified interested parties that after 
the sailing of their .steamer Hercules in 
August they will no longer run steam- 
ers from Portland. Ore., to Oriental 
points under a regular schedule. They 
will, however, load steamers in Port- 
land as opportunity warrants, and are 
reported to have chartered the Fiti:- 
clarcnce, and the Ockley for September 
and October respectively. The Fltz- 
elarence is a recharter from the Robert 
Dollar company, and the rate she re- 
ceives is Ss per ton per month, witli 
delivery in Portland and redelivery 
Hongkong. The Ockley has been sub- 
chartered from '.Messrs. MacXear, San 
Francisco,! at Gs, for a transpacific 
round voyage, with delivery and re- 
delivery Puget Sound.

steamer Which Stranded Ziaet Thursday 

Kear Ketchikan Reached Seattle 

on Sunday 

The Pacific <^oast Steam.ihip com- 
pany's steamship (.'Ity of Seattle, ("apt. 
Thomas John.son, reached Seattle on 
Sunday, brlngliiK the story of her 
stranding on t'han'oil Point, near Ket- 
chikan, early last Thursday niornlnR. 
Passengers arriving nn the Seattle say 
that so gently did she strike the shore 
that none of them realized It. The 
liasaeng»re, apleep at the time, felt not 
the slightest Jar. and It was not until 
several hours afterwards that they 
learned that the engines had stopped 
and that the vessel was high and dry 
on shore. 

The City of Seattle left Skarway fOr 
SeHttle August 13 with !»3 first class 
and 27 second cla.'is passengers aboard. 
Heavy fogs were cn*;ountered and the 
Meamshlp wan obliged to proceed 'at 
half speed. 

Because itl the dense fog.i and run- 
ning at half speed It was ImposBtble to 
J>id«tf'' thr. extttt iocstlon of the ship. 
ai.d iki o o*clf,ck, A.iir<U't 1^. the »te(im- 

shlp went aground on Charcoal Point. 
The engines hud been stopped before 
the vessel struck. The steamer simply 
shoved its i)ri>w Into the mud and gent- 
ly came to a atop. -N'o shook was felt 
at all. 

Owing to the lov, speed of the fcoat 
the 120 passengers aboard did not no- 
tice that the enfe'lneti had ceased throl>- 
Idng. When the passengers came on 
dei'k In the morning to ehjoy the re- 
freshing air they found that the 
steamship was high and dry. 

At high tide on the same day the 
steamship was floated and again start- 
ed on its southward journey. N'o dam- 
age was done to the vessel, and it was 
not even thought necessary to place 
the steamship in the dry dock yester- 
day to examine the hull.

Land Killing on the Seal Islands 
Arranged for Five Years In- 
stead of Ten as the Senate 

Seal killing' will be suspended for 
five years, not ten, as was proVldeu by 
the United States senate, as a result of 
a (jompromise reached betw'een the 
congress and senate at- Washington. 
The .lolnt committees of the' two houses 
agreed to a bill yesterday to bring the 
fur sealing treaty of December last be- 
tween Canada, United States, Russia 
and Japan into effect, and a report was 
presenttd to the senate and adopted 
without comment; Under the terms of 
the seals killed by the government of- 
110,000 a year to Canada in lieu of the 
share of 15 per cent, of the value of 
the treaty the United States is to nay 
flcials on the northern island. With a 
complete cessation of Iciiling by land 
and sea "for five years, there will be a 
very great increase In the .herds, and 
when killing is resumed the amount 
secured by Canada each year will be 
very large.

Mari!)osa Struck Shoal Instead of Sunk- 
en Wreckage as Plrst Seported 

The United States government wiU 
order a new survey of Sumner strait as 
a result of the recent ix;>.ii.iiii- of 
the steamer Mariposa. In.^i' a'l oT .strik- 
ing submerged wreckage, as first re- 
ported, Capt. Thomas Moore, master of 
the steamer, reported that she struck 
unchartered shoals. The Mariposa had 
rounded Point Baker when the vessel 
was shaken froin stem to stern as If 
she had scraped sorhe submerged ob- 
struction. Capt Moore was on the 
course followed by vessels for many 
years in passing through Sumner straits 
and was at a loss to know the cause of 
the shock. 

He is now of the. opinion that the 
long run out of the tide has developed a 
shoal spot and that there is not as 
niuch water off Point Baker as indi- 
cated In the charts. Following the re- 
port of his experience, R. R Plerson, 
superintendent of the Alaska Steam- 
ship cornpany, yesterday Issued a cir- 
cular to masters of all vessels of the 
company changing the course followed 
to Southwestern Alaska via the inside 
passage. The course followed in the 
past has been between Helm rock and 
Point Baker, and now all masters of 
tho Alaska Steamship company have 
been instructed to pass between Strait 
island and Helm rock. 

Capt. Moore in his report gives the 
location , of this- line ha rted shoals as 
magnetic. Point feaker, south by, south- 
west. B>ack rock northeast of Point 
Baker, etst by southeast. 

'I'olnt Baker Is on the northwestern 
end of I'rince of Wales island, and the 
point where the uncharted shoals are 
located has oeen passed over by the 
laige vessels of the Alaska Steamship 
company en route to Prince William 
sound for years. 

Officers of the United ytatBS coast 
and geodetic survey have asketi Capt. 
Moore to, appear befora theni and ex- 
plain hia experience oft Point Baker, 
and will probably order a rerfurvey of 
Sumner straits at this -point.

Contractors Now Entering 
Upon Most Difficult Part of 
Tasl<— Building West of the 

EDMONTON, Alta., Aug. 19.— "Kinks 
J3>f Nature Made Straight "While You 
Walt," iB not the legend over the doors 
of the enKlneers' log shacks in the 
Rocky Mountain country, west of Ed- 
monton, but it might be, as that is what 
they are doing on the Grand Trunk Pa- 
cific- and the Canadian Northern trans- 
continental systems, which are rushing 
.fc-rades and laying steel to the Pacific . . 

Four thoUsad laborers are at worlt 
f.mbering, tunneling, grading and pre- 
paring for th<> TR'As on the first-named 
line. In addition, forty steam shovels, 
.two river boat.s and hundreds of horses, 
dump-carts, scrapers, cranes, track- 
laying machines and all sorts of tackle 
are employed on the last leg of the 
ocean-to-ocean road. Knglneers are 
confident that the golden spike will 
be driven about twelve months hence. 
midway between Edmonton and the 
coasti but the contractors, who have 
charge of the actual work, say the Job 
cannot be completed earlier than the 
fall of 1914 and possibly not before the 
middle Of IfllO. 

Graders are now entering the most 
difficult part o£ the task, the final 
stretch of 210 lailAs, all of which is 
along steep side hills . copipo.sed of 
.slippery mica clay. TUe englncTs, 
v.ho planned the route tiirough the 
Yfellowhead pass wh'.cii iniikes other 
transcontinental grades appear as if 
tliey were blunders, are now running a 
constituent that defies practically overy 
• Ifiw known to railroad science, and will 
keep the rtliovels busy for two years 
after all tlie steel is laid. 

Engineering Frobl«tas 
The nature of tlio jffounil between 
the rail head and Fort Geot-ge presents 
numerous problems In engineering. The 
nilca clay slides ea.sily: In fact, in 
scores of instances It has been ncce.s- 
Knry to dig out tlio same place two or 
tt.rec. tlme.<i. With a mountain of this 
Jilly-llke mixture needinn only a llRht 
rainfall to start it shifting, the Grand 
Trunk Pacific has a problem in railroad- 
ing not encountered elsewhere In the 
v.'estcrn country. feetween Pocahontas 
nr.d Tete .leunc Cache mountains rise 
to heights of from 6000 to 10,000 feet. 
The highest peak is Mount Rohson. 
13,700 feet from base to apex. 

Mile 53, the present head of steel, 
five miles below Tete Jeune, is th« 
busiest place on the line. Two stcam- 
erfc, the Constructor and Conveyor, 
were built lost spring hy Foley, "Welch 
and Stewart, to transpoi;t supplies down 
the swift running Fra.«er river. The 
boats are of the stern-paddle type, 150 
feet in lengt- , with Z4-foot beam, 
driven by 150 horse-power engines. The 
boats are of green sp/uce timber, saw- 
ed on the spot and, erinsiderlng the ma- 
terial, they are remarkably good craft. 
However, on account of drawing too 
much water, the boats can bo used only 
when the stream Is at its highest point. 
So far, only half of the aupRlles have 
been forwarded, and as the season is 
nearing its close, there will be delays. 

Five Bteam shovels an-J several hun- 
dred cars of equipment and material 
Are piled up at the head of steel and 
thtre Is so much other apparatus com- 
Jnp up every day that one wonders how 
' the contractors can send even a frac- 
tion of It down tha Fraser river before 
navtssition olosea. The lighter supplies 
will ffo tofrn In scows, wbleh are built

porting it down a swift river is a Job 
that -iwould^j give even a .seasoned 
sailor some un-raslness. The shovel is 
run over a temporary track to an open 
scow, forty feet in length and twenty 
feet In width, lowered into the bottom 
and lashed to the nose of the conveyor. 
When tlie craft swings Into the current 
and heads down stream the workmen 
hold tlTelr breath, and the owners be- 
gin to figure the probable loss. Two 
shovels have be«n taken down that 
way — Just turned loo.'so and allowed to 
drift, so far without mishap. The Fraser 
river, however, has already claimed

Steel Bridges 

Thirty-two large and small steel^ 
bridges will be constructed between 
Resplendant and Fort George. After 
leaving Tete Jeune Cache the road will 
cross the Fraser river four times be- 
fore rea<!hlng the fort. The first of 
these bridges is 47 miles below the 
present railhead. At the canyon, 65 
miles farther west, the Bur\''ey crosses 
the river twice within a few miles, rc- 
crosslng It at the canyon. There is 
also a bridge at Resplendent, making 
five .spans over th* Fraser river. A 
long bridge will cross the Shuswap 
river and one must be built over the 

Ghost river before trains are run into 
Fort George. 

The principal contractors below steol 
head are: Carlton and Company, 25 
miles, with seven shovels; Crlffln and 
Company, 25 miles, with four shovels 
on the ground; Burns and Jordan, 43 
miles, with a battery of digger*; Spend 
and Company, 25 miles, with five ma- 
chines; and Siiiireons and Company, the 
last 60 mil'e.s of the grade to Fort 
George. This outfit has six of the 
largest shovels in western Canada. 

Saafaess Cannot be CureA 

By local applications, as they cannot 
reach the diseased portion of the ear. 
There Is only one way to cure deaf- 
ness, and that is by constitutional 
remedies. Deafness Is caused by an 
inflamed condition of the mucous lin- 
ing of the Eustachian Tube. When 
this tube is Inflamed you Jiave a rumb- 
ling sound or Imperfect hearing, and 
when It is entirely closed. Deafness Is 
the result, and unless the inflamma- 
tion can l>c taken out and this tube 
restoreti to Its normal condition, hear- 
ing will be destroyed forever: nine 
case."! out of ten are caused by Catarrh, 
which Is nothing but an Inflamed con- 
dition of thfe mucous surfaces. 

We will give One Hundred Dollars 

for any case of Deafne«8 (caused by

Telephone Company Holds City 
Responsible for Any Delay in 
Work of Installing Under- 
ground Distribution System 

Despite the assurance given by the 
city at a recent confereirce with of- 
ficials of the B. C. Telephone company 
that it would proceed at once to secure 
the neces.oary right-of-way into down- 
to'.vn blocks in order that the company 
niiKlu complete its worlt of runnlnR 
its laterals from the muln underground, 
conduits Installed for the underground 
system of the company, the company 
is meeting with strong objection from 
some ownera of buildings who object 
to the attaching of any wires to such 
structures. The city was empowered 
by the legislature to expropriate such 
rights-of-^ay in cases, where an 
amicable arrangement with owners 
could not be arrived nt. The conipany 
proceeded to Instnl ii.s distribution 
.''y.'Jtem, but In cases where tiroublo 
was met with they. _urg?d upon the 
city the necessity of acting und.-r 
the power conferred upon the city. 
l''or months the city delayed until' 
finally the company notified the city 
that unless the rights-of-way were ee- 
oured the company would bring aj> 
action for damages because of the 
delay. .The city passed a by-lay by 
the terms of which, the company avers, 
the latter Was virtually constituted 
contractors for the city In the work 
of Installing the distribution system 
into the various blocks, and while the 
company has been waiting for the city 
to act it Is probable that to avoid 
further delay It will proceed In the; 
capacity of agents for the city and 
prosecute the work, any damages 
claimed by owners of proi)erty to be 
paid by the city, as the company, as 
the city's agent, would disclaim any 

An Instance in point is the objection 
taken by the owner of the 'Wilson 
building lying immediately north of 
Trounce .\lley on Glvernment street. 
The company contemplates running its 
main feed line from the new Union 
Bank building across Trounce alley to 
he attached to the Wilson building and 
thence to premises of other teloiihonc 
users In the block bounded by View, 
OJovernment, Yates and Broad streets. 
The owner.'i of the Wilson l>lock, it is 
said, refuse to permit of the wire be- 
ing strung across to their premises 
unles.n their claim of $l,onn for the 
privilege Is first settled. As the com- 
pany disclaims liability, should the 
company a.n contractors for the city

The Empress Tliea>tTe — Mile la 
Doodlma. a Parisian beauty, offers a 
series of new and striking poses with 
brlUlaJit lighting effect.s and accessor- 
ies as the leading feature of the bill 
imvlded for patrons of the Empress 
theatre this week. The act Is staged 
with a wealth of detail and will no 
doubt assume the position of one of 
the most popular acts on this week's 
programme. The playlet is entltU'd 
"The Green >lnusc." and Is excellently 
iiiiiio'ed l>y two well known players. 
Robert l^ogcrs and Uouise Mackintosh. 
It la a farcical sketch by Edward 
liocke, aulhiir of "The Climax" and 
"The Case of Becky.". Both players, 
who are Mr. and Mrs. Roger.-! in pri- 
vate life, have been here before as 
rrwembers of legitimate companies. 
Miss Lina antzer offers a wire walking 
act which vies with any of thlsclas."! 
of entertainment. She Is a marvel on 
the wire and offers some daring feats. 
Bert Daniel.H and Lester Conrad have 
a musical act that ranks hig*!!. One 
plays the piano and the other the vio- 
lin. The violinist offer's some amus- 
ing ragtime features. Harry Holdon 
and Lucy Harron t,le for honors with

Crystal Theatre — The pictures fhan.:.e 
tomorrow, so that this is the last day 
to .see this excellent programme. "A 
.Sawmill Hero." by the Kalem company. 
Is a typical sawmill story with all the 
settings in and around a sawmill. "Lon- 
don, l':ngland" is an excellent travelogue 
and many of you will see familiar 
scones and sights. "A Redskin's Appeal" 
Is considered by critics to be one of 
the nneet Indian pictures ever released. 
"The Wildcat Well" Is a Vltagraph 
drama with oil well settings and taken 
in the oil country. This picture liss 
many Intense situations and will appeal 
to every one. "The Mystified Pierrot" 
Is a com*dy by the Pijthe company, and 
is considered a scream from the start. 
The vaudeville acts are all that has 
been predicted of them, Walter Belle, 
the Cr-llegn comedian, has a new line 
of talk and songs that are refreshing. 
Clyde and Bertie Edwards hove a com- 
edy singing, talking and rtajiclng act 
that Is v-cry clever and which Is mjnt- 
ing with much approval. •

Xat-u-Rltch gave It a distinction, mak- 
ing It a» little gem that stood out dis- 
tinctly and perfectly in the multicolored 
picture tlie ploy produced. Baby Adel- 
aide, the Indian child, Is a Victoria girl 
who made her first appearance last 
night. Byron Kagan was a handsome 
and very Eflgllsh Sir John Applegate, 
Mr. Conners was a bluff old Big Bill, 
good: hearted and facetious and not 
overdone. Mr. Clapp, as the Indian chief, 
and .Mr. Stokes as a cowboy were duly 
appreicated, and Mr. Kenck as the bad 
man was a real bad individual. The 
ladies of the company were seen in 
parts that suited them well, Mrs. Allen 
making a stately Lady Kerhlll and Miss 
Hudars tjiilte a charming IJiana. 

Frlnoesa Theatre — Sherlock Holmes, 
thf> greattst story ever writ- 
ten, wa.<j the attraction list evening 
at the Princess theatre. And it held 
the Intense interest of the large au- 
dience through the entire performance. 
The plot revolves around a package of 
letters, sought for by several parties, 
all wanting them for entirely differ- 
ent purposes. The parties Interested 
are Alice Faulkner, Sherlock Holme.s, 
Lanabee and wife, and Morlarlty. The 
strong .«iympathy of the audience goes 
out to Alice I'^aulkner, later to Sher- 
lock Holmes, and the play ends in a 
most unexpected manner. Richard 

Lonsdale, in the leading role, evidently 
took his conception of the part from 
the book Itself. In his idle moments 
when he was not unravelling fiom* 
mystery, he was slow and languid, 
both in speech and movement; but as 
soon as he engaged in active work, 
his energy awoke and he was tireless, 
until his object was accomplished, 
when he would sink back into indiffer- 
ence again. Mr. Lons<iale gave a fin- 
ished realistic presentation of tho 
great detective. Morlarity, the king 
of criminals, wjio is a man of acute 
perception, and at times outwits oven 
Sherlock Holmes, was done most eat- 
Isfactorily by Dave Williams. No one 
who had ever seen the genial comedian 
play a comedy part, would Imagine he 
could assume the role of an unscrup- 
ulous vilUan so capitally. The inter- 
est and sympathy aroused by the part 
of Alice Faulkner was most intense 
and Mlsa Pa'ge gave to the part of the 
young girl a firmness and character 
which made it most adm!rai)le. Miss 
Hallie MltOhell and .\rthur Bclasco 
OS -Mr. and Mrs. Lanabee made both 
parts stand out very strongly. Howard 
Foster a.s Forman, Byron Xldem as 
Pr. Watson, and Wm. Heator, as Sid 
Prince were all excellent. The part of 
Billy played ' by a local boy, Robert 
Tnot'm. was well done.

You can sit on your verandah, sheltered 
and cosy, and sweep the lovely landscape 
from Cordova Bay to Esquimalt Harbor. 

Residents in "Stamford Park," the remarkable new seenie subdivision, only two 
miles from eity hall, on the Cedar Hill road, will have some of the most entranemg 
views obtainable anvwhere in Victoria. Imagine being able to command a pan- 
orama like that described above! And yet, owing to the gentle slope of the property, 
these lots are reached by a grade that is hardly noticeable.
